Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will be reinstated by the NFL on Friday, returning to active status for the first time since September, when child-abuse charges involving his 4-year-old son led to seven months on the sideline. Peterson was informed via a letter from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell that he is expected to satisfy his obligations to authorities in Minnesota and Texas, as well as additional counseling and treatment commitments Peterson made April 7 during a meeting with Goodell, the league said in a statement Thursday. - - Jameis Winston, projected to be the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft in two weeks, is being sued for an alleged sexual assault. - - The Jacksonville Jaguars added a year to linebacker Paul Posluszny's contract while reportedly lowering his salaries and guaranteeing more money.

What has happened since our last NFL mock draft ? Not a ton outside of some wild rumors and baseless chatter ?the fun stuff! ?about Team X liking Player Y and the like. But we?ve been gathering information behind the scenes, double-checking our lists and circling back on prospects we missed the first time around. And with it comes another two-round mock draft, this one two weeks prior to liftoff on April 30: 1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers ? Florida State QB Jameis Winston Although the team has gone out of its way to point out that it is examining all avenues, and wild rumors tend to catch wind this time of year,. we believe this pick has been solid since head coach Lovie Smith essentially signed off on Winston?s character at the NFL scouting combine, even if some higher-ups are a little skittish. 2. Tennessee Titans ?Oregon QB Marcus Mariota We don?t believe the Titans will be making this pick themselves, but rather another team ? the San Diego Chargers have been our wild-card pick here for weeks, and the St. Louis Rams should not be ignored ?trading up to pick in this spot. If the Titans stand pat, we think they?d select USC?s Leonard Williams, for what it?s worth. 3. Jacksonville Jaguars ? Clemson OLB Vic Beasley Dante Fowler Jr. said he?d be stunned if he wasn?t the third pick. Well, Dante, prepare your best ?stunned? face. Yes, the Jaguars threw a changeup with Blake Bortles in this same slot a year ago, and we would not be shocked if it?s happening again. It?s either Beasley or Williams in our eyes, and Beasley is the bigger need in the Jaguars? ?Leo? pass rusher role. 4. Oakland Raiders ?USC DE Leonard Williams If you?ve been following our mocks, we?ve etched in a receiver here consistently. But that was on the premise that Williams was gone. Given that Williams is the rare player who openly has campaigned for the Raiders to take him ?and that he?d fill a need, too ?we feel like it must happen. The Raiders can get their wideout(s) later. 5. Washington Redskins ?Florida DE Dante Fowler Jr. New Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan fills a major hole opposite Ryan Kerrigan now that Brian Orakpo is gone. Trent Murphy is a nice player, but don?t be fooled; he?s nowhere near the all-around force Fowler is. This also is a strong trade-down slot if the right deal materializes. Otherwise, we also could see a safe pick such as Iowa?s Brandon Scherff. 6. New York Jets ? Alabama WR Amari Cooper There?s no glaring need at receiver with Eric Decker, Brandon Marshall and Jeremy Kerley currently manning the top three slots. But what better way to boost Geno Smith (or Ryan Fitzpatrick) than with a front-line playmaker such as Cooper? He?s silky smooth, polished and a nice complement to the size of Decker and Marshall and the underneath ability of Kerley. Plus, Marshall currently is a one-year investment, and the Jets could walk away from either Decker or Kerley after this season without getting crushed on the salary cap. We could see this very safe, very smart maiden pick by new GM Mike Maccagnan. 7. Chicago Bears ? West Virginia WR Kevin White The Bears would be in a win-win position, able to pick between the draft?s top two receivers and its best nose tackle in Danny Shelton. With new GM Ryan Pace spending most of his time this offseason sprucing up the defense, he shifts gears and gives Alshon Jeffery a running mate who could be a perfect replacement for Marshall ? without the headaches. White?s character checks with NFL teams have been off-the-charts good, a total departure from the wideout he'd be replacing.

Andrew Luck is sticking around Indianapolis for at least two more years. If Jim Irsay has his way, it will be for a whole lot longer. The Colts surprised nobody Thursday by announcing they would exercise the fifth-year option on their franchise quarterback, a move that guarantees him a salary of more than $16.1 million. So rather than going full throttle on Luck's second contract, the Colts have been working the free-agent market and now will turn their attention to the draft to improve Luck's supporting cast.

Stevan Ridley had to wait a bit in free agency, but he has a new home. The running back spent his first four NFL seasons with theNew England Patriots but will be running the ball for the rival New York Jets, assuming he's healthy, after reportedly signing a contract on Wednesday. Ridley tore his MCL and ACL in the Patriots' Week 6 win over the Buffalo Bills and missed the remainder of the Patriots' championship season. Ridley signed a one-year contract. He visited the Miami Dolphins and Washington Redskins before settling on the Jets. It hurt Ridley's stock not only that he got hurt and was replaced ably by two former undrafted rookies, Jonas Gray and LeGarrette Blount (who was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers midseason), but also because Ridley has carried with him a well-earned fumbling reputation. But he's a former 1,200-yard, 12-TD rusher who can help the Jets once he's ready to go. Chris Ivory is the projected starter now, with Bilal Powell the jack-of-all-trades also in the fold. Ridley has overlapping skills with Ivory but that's a good power combination for a team that will have to run the ball with its share of QB questions. - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.

Unlike a year ago when he was coming off a torn ACL, Von Miller doesn't seem to have a single care. He was doubted the first season he came here,'' Miller said of Manning, who contemplated retirement this offseason after an injury-marred slide to end 2014. I feel totally confident in what he's going to be able to do and the type of Peyton that we're going to see this year.'' Manning, Miller and the rest of the Broncos - minus star receiver Demaryius Thomas, who's been franchised - are set to report to Dove Valley on Monday for the start of offseason work under new head coach Gary Kubiak. The Broncos didn't make their usual big splash in free agency this year, but Miller said that doesn't mean Denver didn't make the right moves.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Washington Redskins have acquired two-time Pro Bowl safety Dashon Goldson from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for an undisclosed 2016 draft pick.

A Utah tribal leader was ousted from office Thursday for accepting gifts from the Washington Redskins, which council members say wrongly linked their tribe to the NFL team's divisive name. Members of the council of the Cedar City-based Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah said they voted unanimously to remove Chairwoman Gari Lafferty, who was accused of misconduct and ethical violations for taking an autographed football and a trip to Washington, D.C., to attend a Redskins game last year. The council said in a statement that those gifts wrongly tied the tribe to a name some American Indians find derogatory. In an interview Thursday, Lafferty said the team never asked her to endorse or advocate for the name.

A fourth man has been convicted in the 2007 shooting death of Washington Redskins star safety Sean Taylor during a botched burglary. A judge immediately sentenced 25-year-old Charles Wardlow to 30 years in prison after he pleaded guilty Wednesday. Wardlow was among a group from the Fort Myers area accused of traveling to Miami to steal money from Taylor's home, believing he was out of town. Eric Rivera Jr., identified as the triggerman, was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to 60 years in prison.

In an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio Channel's " The End Zone " show over the weekend, former Washington Redskins quarterback Doug Williams, who now serves as a personnel executive in the organization, placed a portion of the blame for widespread criticismof Robert Griffin III on social media. Williams is right, if by social media he means Redskins coach Jay Gruden's near weekly public shaming of the former No. 2 overall pick during media sessions this past season. While Gruden told Shutdown Corner at last month's combine that he expects Griffin to remain the starter, Washington is among the teams who will interview elite QB prospect Marcus Mariota, according to the NFL Network's Albert Breer . So, Williams attempted to quell any concerns about Griffin's future before Mariota rumors spread too far. "Talking to Jay and talking to everybody involved, I think it's adamant that Jay has done what he thought was right ? naming him the starting quarterback ? but at the same time Jay also says, 'We hope that he can improve.' Andthis is a young guy that?s got some talent.There's an adjustment that he has to make, and I think, given time, that?s one of the reasons why nobody has given up on him ? the fact that with the talent that he does have you?re hoping that the last couple of years with the injuries and everything is out of the way, that he will develop into the guy that we all hope for him to be. And I think it?s fair to give him that opportunity." After Griffin's impressive 2012 rookie campaign, knee and ankle injuries derailed his last two seasons, resulting in almost as many interceptions (18) as combined passing and rushing touchdowns (21). Williams cited the contrasting offensive styles of Gruden and Griffin ? the former's West Coast approach and the latter's read-option history ? as one reason for the necessary "adjustment," and the Super Bowl XXII MVP hopes this year's hiring of new Redskins QB coach Matt Cavanaugh will help in that regard. Still, when asked by CSN Washington about Washington's interest in Mariota during a recent charity event, Gruden deftly danced around the question without fully endorsing Griffin as his QB of the future. "There are a lot of people who are going to be available with the fifth pick. We're going to look at them all, and we're going to make a good Redskins decision and whoever that is will be a big help for us." Likewise, Gruden dropped the phrase "three-way competition" in a conversation with Redskins.com about the return of all three starting QBs from last season: Griffin, Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy. ?When we start, Day 1, Robert [Griffin III] will be the starter, and then we?ll divvy up their reps from there. There will be plenty of work to go around. There will be plenty of balls for these guys to throw, and we?ll get plenty of reps for them all. The tough thing when you have three quarterbacks, and you?re having a three-way competition is trying to get enough reps to make it a fair competition. But really, we?re going to start out with Robert getting the first-team reps and splitting up the reps from there.? So, while "nobody has given up on him," Griffin's status as a starting quarterback isn't set in stone, either.

Anyone who has ever attempted to put together a mock draft knows that there are a handful of teams whose picks represent flashpoint moments in the draft. Think back to last year. The Jacksonville Jaguars taking Blake Bortles third overall was the first bolt out of the blue, and it helped set the table for the rest of the first round. Then there are the trades. The Cleveland Browns shifted up, down and around the first round (and elsewhere) and easily became one of the pivotal, first-round shaping teams last season. (Which is different from being effective drafters, but that's another point.) There are a handful of teams who can change the tide of Round 1 on April 30 ? either by making surprising picks or by making moves up or down that could shift the landscape significantly. We might not know what the effect of these plate tectonics might be, but we certainly can see where the fault lines might lie. Here's a look at the teams that significantly could alter how the top of the draft is shaped: Tennessee Titans (No. 2 overall pick) ? Ken Whisenhunt's professed love for Marcus Mariota felt a little ingenuine to us, but we also can buy into the idea that Zach Mettenberger might not represent their vision of a franchise quarterback either. Those things are mutually exclusive. The second pick is for sale, but how high is their price? The Titans' biggest need ? outside of quarterback, that is ? is talent. Jim Schwartz used this line when he took over the 0-16 Detroit Lions, and we're going to steal it and stamp it here, too. The Titans are starting to forge the broad strokes of a decent front seven on defense, they have a few OK receivers and some offensive linemen worth working around. Other than that, it's an ugly roster. Depending on what they do, whether it's trade down, take Mariota or fall back on Leonard Williams, could help shape other teams' pursuit of quarterbacks in this draft. [All Draft News, All The Time: Follow Shutdown Draft 365 on Tumblr ] Washington Redskins (No. 5 overall pick) ? We like that the Redskins have been active in free agency, but not active in a "Daniel Snyder is crazy" kind of way. New GM Scot McCloughan is one of the keenest talent evaluators in the game, and he knows the value of picks. That's why we believe any team seeking to move up for Mariota (or whomever else) could really start in earnest at No. 5 overall. That's where the Redskins' pick should be for sale. Really, their needs don't quite sync up perfectly with the talent available, so a move down makes a ton of sense. If they stay put, is it an edge rusher? If so, which one? We assume they'll lean toward either Dante Fowler Jr. or Vic Beasley, whichever one the Jacksonville Jaguars do not take third. But the Redskins are a wildcard factor in the big picture for sure. Why else? Well, we also can't rule out them taking a quarterback. Ah, the Redskins ? always fascinating. New York Jets (No. 6 overall pick) ? They, too, will consider Mariota. The Jets are sending six key decision makers Saturday up to Oregon to meet with the quarterback and try to decide if he's worth their investment. Otherwise, they could be the trade-up destination for another team should he still be on the board at 6. And like the Redskins, the Jets have their eyes on the edge-rush candidates; that's the one clear thing (other than maybe a rangy safety) that their defense lacks at this point. Plus, it's a first-year general manager in Mike Maccagnan, so we don't have a great feel for what direction he might go. We've had various people connect them to Todd Gurley , too, which is fascinating. Is 6 too early for him? St. Louis Rams (No. 10 overall pick) ? The Rams have drafted 28 players the past three seasons (including 13 of those picks in the first three rounds) and could stand to move up if they wanted. That said, they have a mere five selections in the draft, sending fourth- and sixth-round choices to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for safety Mark Barron. Sure, the Rams might be content at 10 and could have a choice offensive lineman ? it's a need ? fall into their laps, or they could even get lucky and be able to pick a top receiver, such as Amari Cooper or Kevin White, whichever one the Oakland Raiders pass on at 4. But Jeff Fisher's continual hinting that the Rams' QB picture is far from complete is intriguing, and it opens up the possibilities of what this team could do. Cleveland Browns (Nos. 12 and 19 overall picks) ? Ah, yes, the Browns once again find themselves in the draft vortex as big players yet riding that line of insanity. There's a good bet that when it's all said and done, GM Ray Farmer might not end up making picks at 12 and 19. No team has more draft cache right now than the Browns, with their 10 overall picks, including additional fourth- and sixth-round picks to play with. What confuses the matter and might not be clear until next week is whether Farmer and Co. are docked a selection for the texting-from-the-booth incident (how Browns is that, by the way?) and if it's a mid-rounder that could change their plans. Are the Browns interested in Mariota? Would they move up? Down? Could they go completely off radar altogether? They certainly are a get-your-popcorn-ready team if there ever was one on April 30. New Orleans Saints (Nos. 13 and 31 overall picks) ? The Saints own five of the top 78 picks, plus an additional fifth-rounder, amid a napalm job to half their roster ? with the other half perhaps ready to be nuked as well. We've been told by league sources that the Saints "still have a big move or two" left in them, so we only can assume that they'll be big players when it comes to Round 1. The Jimmy Graham trade netted them No. 31 and the Kenny Stills deal (which we're still trying to figure out) got them another third-rounder. Everything's on the table, but we've heard they are going all in on revamping this defense and also looking to add a big receiver. The depth of the draft at those respective positions allows them to sit tight and take several good football players. But something tells us that fireworks might be afoot. They're not done blowing stuff up. Philadelphia Eagles (No. 20 overall) ? There are a handful of other teams between 13 and 20, such as the Miami Dolphins or San Diego Chargers, that are capable of shaking things up. But there will be a virtual drumroll and a tangible buzz when the Eagles find themselves on the clock. And, of course, we have no freaking clue when that actually will be. Chip Kelly is making the call on these picks now, and for all we know he could trade every pick he has; we wouldn't put it past him. Needs? They still have plenty ? secondary, offensive line pass rusher, maybe receiver ? the Mariota talk won't go away. It would be a profound disappointment if they stood pat at 20 and took, say, Florida State C-OG Cameron Erving. Nothing against Erving, a player we like very much. It just wouldn't be a very Kelly-ish move, right? Baltimore Ravens (No. 26 overall) ? The Ravens have 10 selections total, with extra fourth-, fifth- and sixth-round picks they can move, along with all of their own picks except in Round 7. (They also have three compensatory picks ? one in Round 4, two in Round 5 ? but those cannot be traded by league rules.) GM Ozzie Newsome has shown a propensity to deal, and he nailed trades up for Joe Flacco and Haloti Ngata, but not wantonly, either. Newsome has to love what he sees in front of him to move up; more likely is for them to move back if the right player isn't on his plate. But they also have some real holes on their team, one that nearly took down the New England Patriots in the playoffs and could go a long way this season if they patch up the roster smartly. Staying put at 26 could land them a receiver or cornerback or pass rusher ? all areas they'd love to improve. But the Ravens also could be a team to watch for a trade, and they pick right in front of the deal-happy Dallas Cowboys at 27, which ups the stakes a tad. - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, who was initially placed on the National Football League's exempt list in September, has been reinstated by commissioner Roger Goodell, the league announced. After reaching a plea agreement in the case, Peterson was suspended by Goodell in November for violating the league's personal conduct policy. "Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings was advised today that effective tomorrow he is reinstated as an active NFL player and may participate in all scheduled activities with the Vikings," the league said in a statement Thursday.

Looking back, the 1995 NFL draft was, well, not so hot. But the top 10 picks were a fascinating historical study. We had a trade involving the No. 1 overall pick, only the fourth time that ever has happened in the league history, and the pick ? Ki-Jana Carter ?turned out to be a major bust. He?s also the final running back to be taken first overall. Maybe for good reason. The expansion Carolina Panthers traded down out of that spot, down to No. 5, where they took quarterback Kerry Collins with their first-ever selection. Fellow expansion club Jacksonville Jaguars took Tony Boseli second. Although Boseli played fewer than half the NFL games that Collins did, the offensive tackle had a brilliant run when healthy. Steve McNair out of Alcorn State went third, followed by Michael Westbrook fourth, Collins fifth and Kevin Carter sixth. McNair had a great career but never won a Super Bowl, beaten out by the St. Louis Rams? Carter in the 1999 season. Westbrook never fulfilled his potential after making one of the more incredible catches in college football history. Also falling under the category of unfulfilled potential is Mike Mamula ?perhaps the most famous ?workout warrior? of all time, tearing up the NFL scouting combine workouts and moving up to the No. 7 pick all time. But to call him a bust is roundly unfair; he had 31.5 sacks and eight forced fumbles in a good but not great (and injury-plagued) six NFL seasons. The problem? The Philadelphia Eagles traded up from No. 12 to select him, swapping picks with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Their pick: Warren Sapp, whose stock had tumbled after a positive drug test. Another team passing on Sapp was the New York Jets, whose fans tore into them when the pick of Penn State tight end Kyle Brady, he of the nine touchdown catches in 45 college games. We also had a trade to round out the top 10, with one coaching genius (Bill Walsh) swapping picks with another (Bill Belichick). Word is that Belichick loved Brady ?insert punch line here ? and moved out when he was off the board. Walsh wanted to draft his top-rated receiver in the draft, J.J. Stokes. Like Westbrook, Stokes had a fairly nondescript NFL career. In fact, only one receiver in the entire draft class ? Joey Galloway, who was taken eighth overall ?had more receiving yards in the NFL than Wayne Chrebet, who went undrafted that year. Yeah, it was one of those years. Incidentally, the two players in the ?95 draft Belichick acquired in the Stokes deal ?linebackerCraig Powell and defensive end Mike Frederick ?barely contributed. Of course, the 1996 first-round pick the Browns acquired in the deal turned out to be pretty good ? for the Baltimore Ravens. That pick was Ray Lewis. Here are 10 more interesting facts on the 1995 NFL draft: Ki-Jana Carter before Curtis Martin, Terrell Davis Two running backs selected, respectively, in the third round (Hall of Famer Curtis Martin) and the sixth round (Hall of Fame candidate Terrell Davis) rushed for a combined 21,708 career yards in their careers, which is only 1,099 fewer than the eight running backs who were selected ahead of Martin. That included No. 1 overall pick Carter, who ran for 1,144 yards ?fewer than two quarterbacks and four fullbacks from the same draft class ?in an injury-plagued career. A lose-lose deal? The expansion Panthers originally held the No. 1 selection prior to their maiden season but traded out of the pick. The Bengals moved up from the fifth overall pick, throwing in their second-rounder (No. 36 overall) as well, to select Carter. Call it a lose-lose deal. Carter tore his ACL on his third preseason carry as a rookie and never was the same. Collins had his moments as a Panther, leading the team to the NFC title game in 1996, but he flamed out there after a bout of alcohol abuse before resurrecting his career elsewhere. Shaun King, a defensive end from Louisiana-Monroe, was the Panthers? other pick in the deal, and he tallied 8.5 sacks in six nondescript seasons that were plagued by multiple substance-abuse suspensions. The Bucs? draft grade: A+ There are three Hall of Famers to date in the 1995 class ?Martin, Derrick Brooks and Sapp. Brooks and Sapp both were first-round picks of the Tampa Buccaneers, at Nos. 12 and 28 overall. Brooks and Carter, who was the sixth overall pick, each played in 224 career regular-season games ? the most from this class. Kansas City Chiefs first-round pick (31st overall) Trezelle Jenkins played in only nine games over three seasons. And the Iron Man Award goes to ? Collins was the final member of the 1995 draft class to play a game in the NFL. He started the first three games, losing all three, of the 2011 season for the Indianapolis Colts when Peyton Manning was out for the season with a neck injury. Second-round pick Jimmy Oliver (61st overall) by the San Diego Chargers was the highest selection that year never to appear in a regular-season game. Shane Hannah, a guard picked by the Dallas Cowboys two spots later, also never appeared in a regular-season game. "We want Sapp! We want Sapp!" The Jets were one of the teams to pass on Sapp, setting off one of the great mass Jets fan apoplexies of all time. Instead, the Jets selected Brady (and listen to the creepy way Chris Berman says, "ooohhhhh" when they do), who played in 197 games in the NFL but only 63 for the Jets. In the four seasons with the team that drafted him, Brady caught 93 passes for 949 yards and 10 touchdowns. In his 13-year career, Sapp made seven Pro Bowls, was named first-team All Pro four times and collected 96.5 sacks. Uh, yeah, he was > Brady. Not exactly football factories The 1995 draft was the last time a player was drafted from the following schools: Augustana (S.D.) College ? Brian Schwartz, second round; Central Oklahoma ?Joe Aska, third round; Concordia (Quebec) ?Mark Montreuil, seventh round; Howard Payne College ?Brandon Harrison, sixth round; University of Pacific ? Craig Whelihan, sixth round; Wayne State (Nebraska) ? Byron Chamberlain, seventh round; Trinity (Texas) ?Herb Coleman, seventh round. Top of their class This year also featured the highest-drafted players ever from the following schools: Alcorn State ?McNair, third overall; Central State (Ohio) ?Hugh Douglas, 16th overall; Fort Valley State ?Tyrone Poole, 22nd overall; Stephen F. Austin ?Terrance Shaw, 34th overall; and Augustana (S.D.) ? Schwartz, 64th overall. Rocky Mountain High The two schools that produced the most draft picks in 1995, with 10 apiece, were Florida State and, interestingly, Colorado. In the 19 drafts since then, FSU has produced 108 NFL draft picks. Colorado has had 56. Punters and kickers are people, too The Chicago Bears made punter Todd Sauerbrun the 50th overall selection, which made him the second-highest punter taken since 1980. The St. Louis Rams made kicker Steve McLaughlin the 82nd overall pick; only eight kickers were drafted higher in that same time range. Sauerbrun had a very respectable 13-year NFL career, making three Pro Bowls, being named first-team All Pro twice and currently sitting 30th all time in punting yards. McLaughlin, however, flamed out after a mere eight games, missing half of his 16 field-goal attempts as a rookie. RIP McNair, Stringer Two first-round picks from the class are deceased. McNair was murdered on July 4, 2009 by his mistress, Sahel Kazemi. Korey Stringer, the 24th overall pick by the Minnesota Vikings, died on August 1, 2001, suffering a heat-related stroke during a training camp practice after a six-year NFL career. - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.

What has happened since our last NFL mock draft ? Not a ton outside of some wild rumors and baseless chatter ?the fun stuff! ?about Team X liking Player Y and the like. But we?ve been gathering information behind the scenes, double-checking our lists and circling back on prospects we missed the first time around. And with it comes another two-round mock draft, this one two weeks prior to liftoff on April 30: 1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers ? Florida State QB Jameis Winston Although the team has gone out of its way to point out that it is examining all avenues, and wild rumors tend to catch wind this time of year,. we believe this pick has been solid since head coach Lovie Smith essentially signed off on Winston?s character at the NFL scouting combine, even if some higher-ups are a little skittish. 2. Tennessee Titans ?Oregon QB Marcus Mariota We don?t believe the Titans will be making this pick themselves, but rather another team ? the San Diego Chargers have been our wild-card pick here for weeks, and the St. Louis Rams should not be ignored ?trading up to pick in this spot. If the Titans stand pat, we think they?d select USC?s Leonard Williams, for what it?s worth. 3. Jacksonville Jaguars ? Clemson OLB Vic Beasley Dante Fowler Jr. said he?d be stunned if he wasn?t the third pick. Well, Dante, prepare your best ?stunned? face. Yes, the Jaguars threw a changeup with Blake Bortles in this same slot a year ago, and we would not be shocked if it?s happening again. It?s either Beasley or Williams in our eyes, and Beasley is the bigger need in the Jaguars? ?Leo? pass rusher role. 4. Oakland Raiders ?USC DE Leonard Williams If you?ve been following our mocks, we?ve etched in a receiver here consistently. But that was on the premise that Williams was gone. Given that Williams is the rare player who openly has campaigned for the Raiders to take him ?and that he?d fill a need, too ?we feel like it must happen. The Raiders can get their wideout(s) later. 5. Washington Redskins ?Florida DE Dante Fowler Jr. New Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan fills a major hole opposite Ryan Kerrigan now that Brian Orakpo is gone. Trent Murphy is a nice player, but don?t be fooled; he?s nowhere near the all-around force Fowler is. This also is a strong trade-down slot if the right deal materializes. Otherwise, we also could see a safe pick such as Iowa?s Brandon Scherff. 6. New York Jets ? Alabama WR Amari Cooper There?s no glaring need at receiver with Eric Decker, Brandon Marshall and Jeremy Kerley currently manning the top three slots. But what better way to boost Geno Smith (or Ryan Fitzpatrick) than with a front-line playmaker such as Cooper? He?s silky smooth, polished and a nice complement to the size of Decker and Marshall and the underneath ability of Kerley. Plus, Marshall currently is a one-year investment, and the Jets could walk away from either Decker or Kerley after this season without getting crushed on the salary cap. We could see this very safe, very smart maiden pick by new GM Mike Maccagnan. 7. Chicago Bears ?
